6connect and BlueCat join forces to solve the multi-DDI problem

by | October 21, 2020

October 21st, 2020 – San Francisco, CA –  The 6connect team is pleased to announce that they are working together with BlueCat on innovative integration opportunities to ease the administrative burden of hybrid infrastructure. Otherwise known as the “multi-DDI” problem, hybrid infrastructure has continued to plague enterprises around the world – until now.

DDI combines core components of DNS, DHCP, and IP address management (IPAM); the term is often used as a shorthand to describe the integration of these core components of networking into one management solution. A DDI solution provides a centralized platform to manage both DNS and DHCP services with an IPAM component. 6connect has a unique Dynamic Network Provisioning (DNP) platform offering a vendor-neutral, native multi-tenant environment that integrates existing authentication platforms for fast and easy deployment from the moment of installation.

“Enterprises can struggle managing purposefully segmented DDI architectures with any agility. Our partnership with 6connect empowers customers with complex infrastructures to move faster to service the business while consolidating visibility and control over their estate,” said Andrew Wertkin, the CSO of BlueCat.”

Combining 6connect’s global expertise in networking, infrastructure, and automation together with BlueCat’s Adaptive DNS offering creates integration opportunities and solves big headaches for the enterprise.

“BlueCat’s focus on modernizing their customer’s architectures are a natural fit for our approach to API-native automation and workflow-driven Modules,” said Aaron Hughes, 6connect’s CEO.

Future integration paths are around Single Pane of Glass visibility into infrastructure and provisioning tasks around DDI including advanced workflows like Approvals for delegated administration changes. 6connect working together with BlueCat on innovative integration opportunities will no doubt ease the heavy administrative burden of hybrid infrastructure – the “multi-DDI” issue that negatively impacts enterprises around the world.
